Records maintained and where to find them
In addition to the policies and procedures below, UKELA maintains a number of records, all of which comply with current guidelines including GDPR and as recommended by the Charity Commission and Companies House.
· Companies House and Charity Commission records for UKELA and its trustees and directors
· Membership data maintained by the Senior Administrator
· Financial records maintained by the Treasurer
· Records of contracts with staff and other contractors and their performance management maintained by the Operations Director
UKELA also maintains a number of publications. Our main outlets are our websites, ukela.org and Law & Your Environment, our public information website. We also publish a members' journal elaw, every 2 months. You can look at latest editions on our elaw pages. We run social media pages including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Follow us to keep up to date with our events and other activities.
We actively welcome volunteers to join us - there are lots of opportunities. Our trustee team are all volunteers from our membership, as are our Working Party, Regional Group and Devolved Administration convenors. We also have student volunteers in the shape of regional ambassadors and advisors to our Board of Trustees. If you have an idea about a new voluntary position please do contact us.
If you would like to get in touch about volunteering or any other aspect of our organisation, please use our enquiry form. We look forward to hearing from you.
